    Thank you so much for your videos. I especially liked this one about Facebook. Can you tell me if we like or comment in groups if that goes on our newsfeed. I am in several sewing groups and like a lot of pictures people post of something they have made.

      The newsfeed is what you see (posts by you and your friends, etc). I think you mean your "timeline" -- you can check that by clicking on your profile pic or name and see for yourself.

    Gary - You are the only person on the whole interweb that I believe otherwise I believe nothing of what I see and absolutely nothing of what I hear!!

    I was encouraged to get of Facebook because of these scams and me falling for them. I'm glad I did, so thanks for the video.

    Hi Gary, i really appreciate all your videos. They are very helpful. I am subscribed to the podcast. One question, i liked the video on facebook so i could share with my friends butvit doesn't show in my timeline. Did i do something wrong?

    Another question, is there a way to sync my bberry contacts to the iphone? I was assigned a blackberry at work and i hate it so i have my iphone too :)

    Thx so much for your help, maria from Venezuela living in Mexico City!

      Use the Share button, not the Like button (or both) if you want to share the video with your Facebook friends. Appreciated!
      Not sure about syncing the Blackberry -- you'd have to see if there is an app from them that does this. I know a company called MarkSpace makes an app to do it, but not sure if there is a solution that comes with the device too.
